Tower Hamlets Labour Party are back out campaigning today for the diverse and talented team of people from the local community the party has selected to fight next year’s local elections.
The group of candidates reflects the diversity of Tower Hamlets and talent of party members – ordinary people who use council services and work hard to improve the local area.
The team includes those who have been council representatives for many years and as well those standing for the first time. Among the selected candidates are charity workers, school governors and small business owners. Candidates include local people with many different backgrounds including those with Somali and Afro-Caribbean heritage who are currently under-represented on the council.
John Biggs, Labour’s Candidate for Mayor of Tower Hamlets, said today:
“We have selected a strong team reflecting the diversity of our borough with the skills, experience, energy and leadership our borough is so severely lacking at the top. Every candidate has a clear task to meet and will rebuild the confidence that has been so badly reduced under Lutfur Rahman.”
